By now gurlfriends you know I am no liar. When I first received the promo for James Yuill’s new album Movement In A Storm I was intrigued by the fact that it’s released by Moshi Moshi; the label that released the last Hercules and Love Affair album. Then I read the description and it said it was part folk and part dance and then I thought, “oh gad not some emo Postal Service stuff.” Guess what, it isn’t! It’s actually a hell of a lot more dance than it is “folk” and as where The Postal Service beats symbolized tears and weeping, James Yuill’s beats are robust accompanied with frail and amorous lyrics that can entice a more touching inner moment but can also just be appreciated for their form. So pick up Movement In A Storm out on Moshi Moshi and watch out for future summer touring dates.
